If you order a Digital Only Pack, you won’t have any option to get your negatives back after scanning. They will be safely destroyed two weeks after scanning.
By ordering a Negative Return Pack, you will receive your negatives. Once all the packs within your order, which must include Negative Return, are back in our lab, we will prepare the shipping and provide you with your negatives.
You will see this option during checkout, if it is available for your order.
If your order doesn’t include Negative Return, you can pick up your packs in Stuttgart and no shipping fees will be charged. In that case please drop us a mail to set an appointment.
If your order includes Negative Return, you can still pickup your negatives, but shipping fees must be charged.
The return sticker is just an address label.
The shipping fees for the return shipment must be covered by you.
Just send your exposed films to:
SILBERSALZ Film GmbH
We recommend to insure the shipping and set up a tracking for a safer shipment.
SILBERSALZ35 provides you with JPG, TIFF and RAW scans of your pictures. To give you the highest possible quality, these TIFFs are up to 360 MB big. We separate the pictures in four folders to enable an easier download.
Nevertheless, you need a fast internet connection for downloading the single folders. We don’t provide smaller versions of the TIFF pictures.
We recommend to overexpose SILBERSALZ35 films by one stop.
In case you choose the Bleach Bypass method for processing, we recommend exposing SILBERSALZ35 by box speed.

BBP is for brave SILBERSALZ35 users only. It provides an even more cinematic and unique look.
For BBP processing we skip the bleach bath for processing. Why? Skipping the bleach bath gives you a lot more contrast and way less saturation, especially in the reds and blues.
Some notable cinematographers that have used Bleach Bypass Processing are Darius Khondji, Dariusz Wolski, Walter Carvalho, Oliver Stapleton, Newton Thomas Sigel, and Janusz Kamiński (notably on Steven Spielberg’s `Saving Private Ryan´ and `Minority Report´).
When using BBP, we recommend exposing SILBERSALZ35 by box speed.
It’s easy. For no more than 50 bucks you can get a beautiful analog camera.
For beginners, we recommend the Canon AE-1.
We do not support cameras reliant to DX-code yet. Please make sure you can manually change your camera’s ISO.
Film likes it chilly. Exposed and unexposed film should be stored using your original SILBERSALZ35 pack in the fridge (13 °C or below).
Your images will be processed and scanned for you with love. Just send in your pack of SILBERSALZ35 to the following address:
SILBERSALZ Film GmbH
Tübinger Strasse 17A
Within 14 days you’ll get your processed and scanned images on a personal download page.
For better protection store the cartridges in the original pack.
Our tests have shown that exposed film should be processed as soon as possible.
Exposed and unexposed film should be stored using the original SILBERSALZ35 pack in the fridge at 13 °C or below.
You can, although we do not recommend it.
Each pack of SILBERSALZ35 comes with one cycle of processing. A processing cycle includes up to four cartridges. You can send us less than four cartridges of your SILBERSALZ35 pack, but this counts as one full cycle of processing.
Moreover, you have to mind that every special developing option (like Bleach Bypass or Pushing and Pulling the films) is only available for an entire pack of four films.
No. SILBERSALZ35 film is designed to be processed with the real cinefilm ECN2-process only. Your local lab is certainly using the simpler and lower-quality C-41 process for development.
Please be aware that true cinefilm can damage regular C-41 processing machines.
Sure. We are based in lovely Stuttgart, Germany. If you are nearby just drop us a mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your images will be processed and scanned for you with love. 🙂
Within 14 days you will receive a personal download link from us. With SILBERSALZ35 you don’t pay extra for every megapixel.
The link contains full resolution JPG files and TIFF files with the SILBERSALZ35 color science as well as uncompressed RAW files via Dropbox.
If you go for this option while placing your order – that’s possible!
Therefor, if you want to have your negatives send back to you after scanning, please select a pack which includes Negative Return while ordering your pack of SILBERSALZ35. No matter how many packs with Negative Return you have in one order, we will charge just one additional shipping fee. Hence, we wait for all the Negative Return Packs from this order to arrive before we send out the negatives.
Please understand that you will get your negatives later than the scans. We will store your negatives for two weeks after scanning, to ensure that we can rescan the films in any case.
Finally, please note that local pickup is not possible when choosing a Negative Return Pack!
Your digital scans will be available via a personal download link for 60 days. Without selecting a pack with Negative Return during your order, your negatives will be properly destroyed.
Please drop us a mail: email@example.com
In order to deliver the best possible results at the same affordable price for everyone, we decided to only sell packs of four.
Not yet. Please drop us a mail with any ideas or suggestions: firstname.lastname@example.org
We worked hard on adapting the whole process of analog motion picture productions for your photos.
The CINESTILL proprietary “Premoval” process makes motion picture film safe to process in standard C-41 photo chemicals. Our tests show that C-41 processing results in degraded color and contrast rendition.
SILBERSALZ35 are the actual, unchanged motion picture stocks used for films like ‘Dunkirk’,’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ or ‘Wonder Woman’, with true cinefilm chemical processing (ECN2). For scanning we are also using state-of-the-art cine equipment. For digital post processing we only use our own unique color science.
This is our little secret. Don’t ask again! 😉
21 Megapixels. 13 stops of dynamic range and 16 bit color depth.
JPG and TIFF and RAW files.
Your images are scanned using our state-of-the-art Cintel scanners. RAW files are converted into JPG and TIFF files using our unique SILBERSALZ35 color science.
